Mission Statement

The goal of the Physical Education Department of Chaparral Middle School is to provide students with an appreciation of physical activity in their daily lives. Physical Education is an integral part of the total education experience. It provides opportunities to develop physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially through planned physical activities.
We pledge to maintain a non-threatening environment where all students are free to challenge themselves. We are dedicated to helping students strive to reach their potential..


1. To develop the desire, knowledge, and commitment to life-long fitness.
2. To build student's self-esteem in a non-threatening environment
3. To develop cooperation skills through teamwork (individual, group, and class)
4. To have every student dressed appropriately for participation
